West Dunbartonshire is moving into Tier 4 restrictions on Friday 20 November, which will be in place until reviewed on 11 December. Under this arrangement the maximum number allowed in buildings for worship is 20 – including the minister, organist, welcome team and audio-visual team. That will mean a big reduction in the number of people able to attend as ‘ordinary congregation’, particularly at Riverside. For Riverside it is probably essential that attendance is booked in advance – otherwise it might be necessary (though highly regrettable) to turn people away. A booking system is not yet in place for St Andrew’s or West Kirk, but it may be necessary to introduce one.
